    Okay here is something to help you with the parts of the machine. I know that we have a lot of names for different things depending on the part of the world your standing on but this graphic should help us get on the same page. Now when you guys PM me about a part you need for your machine you can look at this and tell me exactly what it is your after. Although I do love looking for a thingamabob thats next to the doomaflicker! :P :lol: :lol:

    But this will also help you in your ventures of servicing your own machine because when the manual refers to a part you know where they are talking about.

    So here you go and if I can find more detailed graphics of the underside and the needle bar area I will post them.

    Thank you Billy. I think you finally got tired of us gals calling sewing machine parts thing-a-ma-bobs and whatchadoozies!!! Now, If you could just teach those people on ebay to describe things accurately.........

    But my sewing machine has a do-hicky; it's right next to the thingamajig under THAT thing. >.<

    Thank you for posting this picture. I will have to save it somewhere in case I have to describe stuff to my repair guy.
